About Campus

The University of Xiamen was established in 1921 and has produced more than 300,000 undergraduates and graduates. The university aims to nurture students with dignity and wisdom, moulding them into young talents with a global outlook that can contribute to the progress of Malaysia, China, and Southeast Asia.​ Thus, the creation of XMUM has set a new standard in the areas of educational cooperation and exchange between China and Malaysia.
